Hubby and I have been flat out on the couch with the cooties for about 10 days. Neither of us has been sick like this in a long time. boo. The good thing is, we have binge watched The Crown and it gave me plenty of hand sewing time. I was happy to finish up the binding on this quilt so I can share it with you. Today was a nice day for a photo shoot, so we mustered up some energy and headed outside.

Last year, one of the gals in the McKinney Modern Quilt Guild designed a modern mystery block of the month. It was a skill builder of sorts, nudging us to try different techniques. I enjoyed making the variety of blocks using gray prints and bright solids from my stash.
I really like the end result! With a few tweaks to the provided layout, mine ended up about 54" X 60". A nice lap size, or toddler sized quilt. I sent it off to my friend Sandy for quilting. Told her "do something modern" and this is the pattern she used....
This is my first finish in the 2017 Finish-along.
